An explosion in Manahawkin, New Jersey injured at least 15 people today, including two critically, when a gas main was broken in a house under renovation, and all of it was horrifyingly captured on a dashcam. It appears as if there was some forewarning of a problem, as many of the injured were first responders.

Via Patch.com:

Seven of the injured were gas company workers, six were firefighters and two were emergency management technicians. Two gas company workers were reported to be in critical condition at AtlantiCare Medical Center in Atlantic City.

Several other homes were damaged in the explosion.

More as we have it.
